Severe weight drop off

I might have mentioned this before.  My ability to lift or press weight drops off very quickly when I pass a very small increase in amount.  I can dumbbell press 25 lbs for 15 reps, but when I move up to 30 lbs, I can only do 3 reps.  Not the typical drop according to Brad.  I should be able to do much more.  But, it appears neurologically that my brain doesn’t know how to handle the extra weight right away.  Like last week, I wasn’t able to deadlift 80lbs at all, but I did 4 sets of 75lbs, 5 reps each.  This week, I worked up to 80lbs and was able to do 2 sets of 80lbs, 5 reps each.
